“A Los Angeles treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Taking a picnic dinner to the Bowl and then listening along with thousands of others to the Hollywood Bowl orchestra or whoever is playing that evening is one of the best things about living in LA. It's also one of the few places where you can see Angelenos gather together and remain considerate of each other....everyone seems to clean up after their picnic and is in a good mood. And why not? The Bowl is all about good times.

“A very very special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The bowl is one of the very special California experiences. I first visited in 1969 and saw Frank Zappa. I think I got stoned just from the second hand smoke. I have seen Ella, Vince Gil, the sound of music sing along, jimmy Buffett, Tom petty and many many pop groups. W have had a series subscription to classical nights for 5 years, seeing the L A Phil. We loved the Hollywood bowl orchestra too. We ve enjoyed many nights of fireworks. We always bring a picnic. Sitting in box seats or way up high is equally fun. It is truly a privilege to be able to attend this very special place.
PS. We take the shuttle bus from Griffith Park...no parking woes.

“Picknick w/music....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Summer in the Bowl, dining with music, this is what civilization is supposed to be about. Very enjoyable, outside experience. Pack a meal or purchase on site. It's a Summer institution in LA.

“How can you rate such a place? It's the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The Hollywood Bowl is one of the great things about LA. It is extraordinary. So beautiful. It is very well organized with all sorts of dining and drinking options as well. Need to go online and plan that part. Also, people bring fabulous picnics and there are tables in the boxes, or you can eat at tables/ grass around the Bowl. The only thing about eating in the boxes is if you are big or a little claustrophobic the space can feel tight. So also great to bring wine/ cheese/ snacks. They bring in amazing artists and quite a variety of classical, jazz, rock, etc. Tickets can be pricey but it's usually a very worthwhile experience.
